So I am sure that there are some families who decorate on Christmas Eve, but this is the absolute latest I have ever put at tree up! Whatever- it is done, and although a little lopsided, the tree looks great! It is really big- standing at about 9 feet- but it fills our now empty living room quite nicely! It almost makes me happy we don't have any furniture in the room...almost! lol! Oh well next year! I took some shots of our fireplace mantle too- it is much nicer in real life- couldn't get a good shot today! I have to thank my Mom, my Aunt Pam and my Uncle Ted ( for the awesome baby sitting!) for helping me with the decorating! Also thanks to the DH for chopping the end off the tree and helping me set it up! Sadly it has to be out at the curb on Jan 5th so we don't get to enjoy it for long! Here are some pics! ENJOY!
